High reliability organizations consistently examine and learn from failures. This systematic review identified several effective learning tools that can be adapted and used by multidisciplinary health care teams following a patient safety incident, including debriefing, simulation, crew resource management, and reporting systems. The authors concluded that these tools have a positive impact on learning if used soon after the incident but further research about successful implementation is needed.
